callum. good morning to you. good morning everybody at home. first lady michelle obama headlines the democratic national convention last night. it was a big night for her. she stood in front of a crowd of faithfuls and basically said that the president needs another four years to finish the job. >> i see the concern in his eyes and i hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, you won't believe what these folks are going through, michelle. it's not right. we've got to keep working to fix this. we have so much more to do. [cheers and applause] [shouting]. bill: so already now we have reaction from the romney team saying in part, quote on the first night of president obama's convention not a single speaker uttered the words americans are better off now than they were four years ago. our country deserves real solutions an a plan to turn our economy around, end quote. bob cusack, managing editor of "the hill." let's get to romney's comment first. the speech last night, how did it play? >> bill i was in the arena. it played very well. brought down the house t was genuine. at the same time ve
. this has huge political implications as it comes after first lady michelle obama speaks to the dnc. there is a huge economic warning signal being made here. number one, $16 trillion worth of debt which means we owe more than our economy produces in any one year. our debt is bigger than our economy. secondly, we're now going to be paying close to $10 billion a week in interest alone. about a half trillion a year. 10 billion a week. up from nine billion last year. and about a quarter of that interest will be paid to foreigners. it will go out of the country. japan, china, britain, they're the three major holders of our debt. they all get about a quarter of all of this interest that is flowing and it will flow out of the country. so political impact, and a big economic danger signal too, martha. martha: we know, it was a huge focus of the rnc last week in tampa. big debt clock that loomed over the proceedings there. you simply don't hear much though about the debt from president obama. do you expect we'll hear hear anything about it at all this week? >> very little because it is a big
, the big night for michelle obama and ohio's decent, you know, up on the float over there, as you saw, the president will be there tomorrow and martha, this is where we are today. >> martha and, not a basketball net in sight, at the moment. >> bill: right. >> martha thank you, bill. what a sight that is. it gets underway and there are some tightening polls out there, we are looking at this morning, as we get new numbers in and that will force president obama to ramp it up on the campaign trail and he said it is something he absolutely wants to do. some of what is out there includes new attacks, against his rival, mitt romney, but, is the president spending too much time talking about governor romney and not enough talking about his own record? that is the big question. >> you say i keep talking about mitt romney, i keep talking about mitt romney, because, all mitt romney does is talk about barack obama, and, this election is a choice. where you will hear this week, in charlotte, the president will present a clear agenda for the future, that talks about how we build a sound economy, an
had a great speech and the night before, michelle obama. if you were listening what i call a fact challenged listener, switching between honey boo-boo and barack obama gee, that was a great speech. it was like a helium balloon. it was filled with a lot of lighter than reality air that made you float but there wasn't anything in the balloon. he was giving a whole litany of things he was going to do, if you couldn't do it now, why couldn't you do it on last four years. it was empty. people on the left were critiquing it that way. heather: not a lot of facts to back up a lot of language to talk about moving forward. >> to reach out and say i will create a million manufacturing jobs? really? go ahead. pull a rabbit out of your head. make mosquitoes where they don't bite. make it where a woman with a size 11-foot gets to wear a size five shoe. let's go ahead and do all the great things. but that is the problem with the speech last night. he didn't say, here's where we are, here's how we got there but here's how we're going to fix it and by the way i didn't do this way before because i
-election. michelle obama did as bill clinton and former michigan governor, jennifer granholm. this president is using socialist euphemisms, fair share, fair shot, dividing america, not using hope and change rhetoric he was so powerful for using four years before and able to get elected by such a wide march begin then. this is frustrating true believers the dowds of the left really are. whatever they may have felt four years ago they have been backing this president up every turn. >> she was never a true wleefr. martha: let me interject here. in the ericson piece written by one of his reporters at red state he talks about whether or not the president is relevant. goes to issues showing up in this maureen dowd piece which is whether or not he was one making the change that he was seeking. and when you look at bob woodward's book it gives a couple of examples that time nancy pelosi was talking to him about the budget. according to woodward's reporting she put the president on mute so that the people in the room could continue their conversation while he was espousing something. she says that is not true
